-- it is not money, it is time. you have 10 weeks or less between the conventions and election day. and mitt romney had to spend two weeks dealing with this issue. he had a very good debate showing. and it seems to of an impact at the polls, initially here. maybe he would be further ahead now have to actually spend those two weeks doing what he had intended to do, rather than playing defense. and i do know the focus groups of both the romney campaign and the obama campaign shows these remarks really alienated independent voters and week republicans. which indicates to me that if this comes up in the debate, it will remind people, they may respond to this down the road or in the next debate. host: let us get to phone calls. >> i would like to say that mitt romney expressed his real feelings about the 47%. it cannot be ignored. and also, understand that he it pledge.rover norquist's if he did that, he cannot represent 100% of the population. because of you say that you are going to ignore the situation that the country is in, you cannot say that you unequivocably will ignore taxes the country. for he
